minutes that window was big enough and right in time for the shuttle to take off today. >> chad, same kind of rules apply, weather standards for the landing that's coming in 12 days? >> a little bit even -- i would say a little bit more conditional on the rain factor because it's a bigger circle. right now all we had to do was shoot this thing straight up. when we land this thing it has to be very dry. you can't have showers around it. think of a dry day in florida in the summertime. you have to go up edwards, one time to white sands but you cannot fly the shuttle because it's screaming hot. thousands of degrees, you can't bly that through a rain shower. the criteria more tense, harder to get through to land this thing back here at kennedy, but they have a big time -- they're going to have a big-time party when this thing finally does come back here. >> chad myers, appreciate that breakdown. good to see you, as always. thanks to our john zarrella. eight minutes past the hour. >>> sound effect is the u.s. labor market sputtering to a virtual standstill. as you know by now, the economy added

're going to have to push the big changes to deal with the deficit and debt, going to have to go down the road a bit and to the long term, maybe more than ten years? >> chris, i don't know about more than ten years, but certainly as you know, simpson boles, senator simpson and former chief of staff irskin boles, in their report they proposed making substantial cuts, raising revenues and across the board with all items of expansion. but they said in the near term, meaning the next year of so, we need to be very careful that we did not have the opposite effect by dampening down the struggling economy, obviously, as we saw today, which will decrease revenues and make the problem worse, not better. so in the short term, i agree with the bowles-simpson suggestion that we be very careful in the short term. there's no doubt, however, in the white house yesterday, or thursday -- yesterday -- there was a clear agreement that this was a serious, serious challenge that confronted us and it demanded at all of us try to come together and reach an agreement whereby we will certainly over the next 1
words, one big, vast cost-saving measure. a politician in britain tonight said, it's a smoke screen. if it is, then once again, the murdoches have played their hand extremely well. >> you talk about a smoke screen and the politicians there. politicians are on the run from this, aren't they? some of them in the past have been very fond of having murdoch publications endorse them, get behind them. now they're trying to say, we've had nothing to do with the man behind the curtain. >> yes, and you see, the thing is that parties from both sides, the labor party, for example, the socialist labor party could never have got elected, perhaps, originally, if the "sun" newspaper, the murdoch staple, hadn't supported them. they always needed them, david cameron, needed the "sun" to come back on to his hands. david come cameron is close friends with rebecca brooks, the editor during this scandal, and is now the top executive. what hugh grant said to me yesterday, basically, the actor, is, it stinks. the stench of collusion between government, politics, media is so entrenched here that one this n
an agreement on the debt ceiling. >>> our top story it was touch and no go for a big waiting and wondering game to see if the weather could cooperate. about half an hour ago the "atlantis" was cleared for takeoff and off it went. take a look. >> america will continue the dream. >> this is the 135th and final space shuttle flight. with it nasa's 30-year shuttle program comes to an end. msnbc's tam ron hall host of "news nation" is live at cape canaveral. you were will watching the entire thing, tam ron. could you feel it? >> absolutely. you know, richard, before the launch, several of the veterans around here told me that you could actually feel the ground shake and ufld feel the tremor. i thought, these are urban myths that you hear. not only did ulf, i felt the tremendous morse. i felt it reverberate through my body. we are the conduit for those at home, i was moved to tears witnessing that four-person crew going up on the final launch of the shuttle program. it is incredible. "atlantis" has traveled other 115 million miles. it is the lightest in the fleet. it was built at a rapid pace because

.m. and i'll look at our morning forecast >> queerness see a big variety in temperatures it will be hot once again on the in land spots. we are still seeing some of that fog. not quite extends as it was yesterday over the golden gate bridge. the satellite shoes to wear the fog is located below cloud cover is pushing further inland. current temperatures in san francisco is 54 degrees and this is look of the temperatures right now are around the area. and this is what we expect for the afternoon high temperatures. the further 11 to go the more like summer it is going to fill. this is your seven day forecast by saturday in we will continue to see a breeze picked up in the afternoon. then we continue the pattern of morning fog >> it looks like we have light traffic this friday morning no hot spots or delays to report this is all look at the toll plaza barr. and the san mateo bridge traffic looks good. southbound 101 across the golden gate bridge no accidents to report in the area. we have construction in the north client 80 antioch has to lanes closed and they will remain closed until 5:00 a.m..
goodness, anny, we have a big day coming up weatherwise. >> we have not declared a severe weather alert day yet. we'll look at the latest models and decide that probably before the noon show. for the rest of today, we're expecting mostly cloudy conditions and yeah, big storms are possible later today. here is a look at your day planner now. by 9:00, still mostly cloudy. chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. by 5:00, storms are likely. temperatures in the mid-80s. right now, 79, mild and muggy under mostly cloudy conditions. we do have a flood watch in effect. flash flooding possibility. that starts at noon this afternoon. goes through late tonight. that includes the entire d.c. metro area. the portion of the mid-atlantic in fact. here is a look at live doppler. fairly quiet out there. scattered light showers up to the north of us. we're under cloudy skies. much different picture late this afternoon. in fact, here is a look at the risk for severe weather. the areas we see here shaded in yellow. a good portion of the mid- atlantic. the main threat for today, damaging wind g
economist said, ian sheped heardson said a big bucket of cold water. 18,000 jobs created overall. the estimates ranged from 80,000 to 125,000. market and economists expected more jobs creation than that. when you dig within the numbers you can see government jobs were shed. wow. thousands. 57,000 private sector jobs created but 39,000 government jobs lost. unemployment rate went up. so this tells you, kyra, bottom line, that private companies are not confident to hire in big numbers at all and the government, local and state government, because of budget cuts, continue to slash jobs. this is what the trajectory looks like. we have come from massive job losses there over about a year ago 192,000 four months of bad jobs and then you saw job created and it petered out. another thing when we dig into the numbers. you look at the revisions and what prior months were changed either higher or lower and we found another 44,000 jobs we thought had been created weren't. so it was other months revised down about 44,000. manufacturing, construction, temporary services and jobs in these areas
is a big point of concern here. nancy pelosi was very adamant yesterday, saying that the republican caucus would not accept any deal that would cut medicare, cut social security. and remember, they're most likely going to need democratic votes to get this across the finish line because we're expecting any type of deal to extend the nation's debt limit will get a lot of republican defection. >> we just got the two-minute warning. we saw some activity from one of the staffers coming out to put president obama's notes at that podium. so i want to keep you with me right now to talk about what can we expect with the president telling everyone they need to stay in town, not go home, there's going to be work over the weekend, and that they're going to be in session next week trying to hammer this out? >> they're going to be in session next week. and we also got word the house will stay in session july 18th. essentially what you're seeing now, thomas, is some of it's political show, obviously, when people have to work on sunday that sends a message to the american people, you're having your day of
the next big question when casey is released where she's going to go. did mason give any hint about that? >> he said plans were being made. he would not tell me what they were. but he is concerned for her safety. they all are. they do realize the public opinion in this nation deems casey anthony maybe one of the most hated women in america right now. so they are taking security precautions for her safety. >> i want to play some of what he said about their fears for her safety. let's listen. >> sure. yeah. everybody around her knows we have to be concerned for her safety. there's a lot of nuts out there that don't believe in the constitution of the united states, don't believe in the jury system. all you have to do is go downstairs on the sidewalk and you'll see. >> he wouldn't say, though, what precautions they're taking to ensure her safety, right? >> no. he wouldn't even tell me where she's going to go. he does not think she can live in orlando, florida or even the state of florida, and wonders where in the united she can become anonymous and just sort of blend into the society. he had
of the united states of america. and the craziest part -- >> the u.n. wants to spend a big chunk of that money on things that have nothing to do with climate change in third world countries. stuart varney is here to weigh in on this. so where does this come from? where does the money come from and where would they like to see it go? >> where do you want to start on this one? this shows you how totally out of wack the global warming community is with american public opinion. what the u.n. says is this -- we need $1.9 trillion each and every year for 40 years in order to solve the climate problem worldwide and to reduce poverty and hunger worldwide. so they're bringing in poverty and hunger along with climate change. >> it's not all green. it's poverty, hunger and everything else. >> but you cannot eradicate poverty and hunger without going green because if you don't go green, you increase poverty and hunger. you got it? >> so where is this money expected to come from and how much is coming from the united states? >> ok, we contribute 22% of the united nations budget so theoretically, if this
. it was not a big political thing. it was a holiday. we were just going to go and sing sing christmas carols, do some rap songs, whether we could do to cheer up the brothers that were locked up. we started to do it over and over again. it was only 10 years later and that we began to see ways to use that in a more pro-active way. we would come out of a nightclub in new york city, my brother, my cousin, and i. we had had some experience with the police harassing us on the streets. this particular night, somebody had gotten into a fight, we were probably the only black folks in a white neighborhood the party that they were at, they were playing salsa, marvin gaye, and we were hanging out after the birthday party. we got caught up in a situation where the police had been called for shots fired. we happened to be the only black people there, they got us and put us in jail. that was the first day that you mentioned. the long and short of it is, i was in my second year of law school at the time. i am reading all these things about criminal procedure, criminal law. the stuff that is on the books is not

the economy still in big trouble. look at this. a slowdown in hire anything june pushing the unemployment rate now to 9.2%. only 18,000 net new jobs were added to the work force last month. at least 250,000 jobs are needed per month to drive the unemployment rate down significantly. and get this, since president obama took office we've seen the economy lose two and a half million jobs. president obama assuring americans there is a reason the numbers are so disappointing. listen to this. >> the sooner that the markets know that the debt limit ceiling will have been raised and that we have a serious plan to deal with our debt and deficit, the sooner that we give our businesses the certainty that they will need in order to make additional investments to grow and hire, and we'll provide more confidence to the rest of the world as well so that they are committed to investing in america. >> molly henneberg live for us at the white house with more on the president's reaction. molly? >> hi, gretchen. clearly not the type of monthly jobs report any president wants to see. unemployment up for the third
and then this dip now? >> e.d., you talk to some analysts and they say, you know what, we had some really big shocks to the economy, to an economy that's already in trouble. first we had that ripple effect from the earthquake and tsunami in japan. that really hit manufacturers and automakers really hard and stopped production in its tracks. that's one effect and one reason we're seeing such low numbers. another reason, these higher oil prices we've been dealing with. they jacked up gas prices, so consumers pulled back on spending on other discretionary items. now, that doesn't help to give companies any extra confidence to hire when they see that nobody is, let's say, walking into their store to buy things. also these high oil prices cut into company's profit margins because for them it costs more to produce these products and distribute these products. these companies, you know, just overall, they aren't hiring. in the economy itself there is just a lot of uncertainty. if the economy would be on solid footing, then they'll hire but we're just not there. and of course amplifying this whole situation
in damascus. >> it's the highest lottery prize ever offered in european history. >> perhaps with a big lottery win you buy a flash supercar or maybe perhaps a luxury home, possibly even a never-ending holiday of a lifetime. but better yet, what about buying the whole lot? because if you win the euro millions this week, there's no doubt you could afford it all. across europe, ticket sales are soaring, from spain to switzerland, ireland to france, people all over are trying their luck at winning the 185 million euro jackpot. this store in belgium, for instance, has seen an unprecedented surge of wannabe winners. >> i think it's one of the best weeks of the year. people came on more, and we're expecting the crazy day. >> the highest ever lottery win on european soil was in italy's super lotto two years ago. back then, one lucky ticket netted just under 148 million euros, but if tonight's jackpot is won by a single winner, that record will be smashed. but it won't just be good news for that person. the rules of euro millions don't allow the jackpot to grow beyond the 185 million euro, so any extra
